On July 13, the Secretariat of International Relations of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply revealed the results of the report on exports of Brazilian agribusiness for the month of June. Flavio Maluf, president of Eucatex stated that the report showed a decrease of 0.7% compared to the same time the previous year.
As both the CEO of a family owned and operated global conglomerate and the son of a prominent Brazilian government official, Maluf knows a thing or two about governmental reports. While some might see the downturn as cause for alarm, Maluf seemed to put a very different spin on things. Maluf took pains to point out that soybeans account for more than 50% of Brazilian agribusiness exports and agribusiness exports alone account for more than 45% of Brazil’s total exports.

In the first half of 2018 alone, Brazil exported more than 46.27 tons of the grain which generated revenues of US $18.43 billion. In a survey conducted by the Brazilian Supply Company (Conab), they estimated that soybean production would reach 119 million tons, with a total of 72 million tons going towards exports. That amount would exceed last year’s volume by 5.6%. Compared to the first half of 2017, Brazil has increased their export yield by 5.2% and reaped a 10.6% increase in value, which resulted in an overall average price increase of 5.1%.
Agribusiness in Brazil encompasses small, medium and large producers whose efforts are largely coordinated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. Through efforts geared towards creating both sustainable development and competitiveness, the aim of the ministry is to provide food security for the country’s own citizens as well to create a surplus for export. The overall aim of the ministry is to stimulate the national productive sector to eventually make Brazil a global force in the international economy.

The first way to ensure safety is to have a home safe or lockbox. Second, is to have a safe-deposit box at the bank, so your assets are not all in one place. The third, having a safe-deposit box at a foreign bank for extra security. Fourth, an independent vault in the U.S. These are helpful because with an independent vault there is no need for the government to need your private information, unlike a bank. Lastly, to have an independent vault in a foreign country. This is the most discreet way to protect your assets, there is no regulation for government to need information as well as the IRS.

The Rise of OSI Industries to the Pinnacle of Success
OSI Industries is one of the biggest food companies the world over. The company has a workforce of 20,000 in 65 facilities spread across seventeen countries. OSI Industries has come a long way from the early days to have a significant presence in the global economy. Similar to many success stories, this company traces its roots to immigrants’ pursuit of the American Dream. The enterprise was founded by Otto Kolschowsky, a German immigrant who settled in Chicago, at a time when the city was bursting with economic opportunities.
In 1914, Carl Sandburg described the Chicago as the City of the Big Shoulders as the influx of immigrants soldiered on. Kolschowsky opened a small meat market and butchery in 1909 and by the end of World War I, it transformed into a wholesale business. Partnerships and rebranding would soon follow.
In 1955, Ray Kroc opened the inaugural McDonalds eatery in Des Plaines as the franchising concept began to take root in the US. Before this venture, Kroc had partnered with Kolschowsky’s Otto & Sons to supply meat to his restaurant, and this quickly became their primary job. Otto & Sons struggled to keep up meat supply for this soon-to-be food industry behemoth.
Over two decades, Otto & Sons transitioned to OSI Industries to bolster its supply to the increasingly demanding McDonalds restaurants. Towards the end of the 1960s, a new technology– flash freezing- came into being and made it much easier and affordable to supply meat. This move catapulted OSI Industries to becoming a core supplier of McDonald’s thereby establishing itself as a stable supplier and in Chicago and all over the Midwest.
In the early 1980s, the thriving enterprise ventured into the international food market while still maintaining McDonald’s as a key client. Recently, OSI took the 58th spot on Forbes largest private conglomerates with sales revenue of $6.1 billion. In 2016, this holding company acquired Flagship Europe, a company that supplies frozen poultry, sauces, dressings, etc. to the UK market. OSI’s president and COO, David McDonald, praised this acquisition for broadening its market presence and expanding its product portfolio. OSI Group acquires Baho Food

Hungary is the birthplace of George Soros, and he attended the London School of Economics. His career in finance began with his position at a merchant bank, and he later established himself on Wall Street. He began his first hedge fund for $12 million in 1969, and made a large profit shorting the British pound. This caused him to be referred to as the man who broke the Bank of England. He developed Soros Fund Management, and hired Dawn Fitzpatrick in 2017 to manage his investment portfolio. George Soros supports liberal causes, and is one of President Trump’s fiercest critics.After Donald Trump assumed the presidency, protestors believed the liberal protest movements were being funded, and controlled by some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. Although there is no truth to the theory, George Soros has been targeted in the conspiracy theory. There is no doubt George Soros is a powerful, and wealthy man with a worth of $25 billion. This has placed him in the middle of conspiracy theories since the 1990’s. These theories target individuals on the right, and are made by the people on the left.
George Soros attracted major attention when he helped groups trying to block the reelection bid of George W. Bush in 2004. The combination of his political involvement, and his speeches against the war in Iraq started conspiracy theories still in existence, and he was accused of secretive plots. The theories become outrageous and include George Soros scheming with the elite of the world to destroy the global currency. Some accusations are true and include his support for refugees, migrants, and reform in the criminal justice system.The choice made by George Soros to use his wealth in the political arena is not any different from the billions donated to the Republicans by David, and Charles Koch. Many of the European countries who have governments leaning to the right are against George Soros, and he has been called the euro’s enemy.
Despite the accusations of secrecy, and schemes, he has not made a secret of his desire for social justice. He has spent $1.6 million developing democratic policies in Eastern Europe, and $1.5 million on democratic governance, criminal justice, and immigration reform. There have been numerous speculations this is due to his flight from Nazi persecution.The theories George Soros is responsible for the ills of the world is being generated by the right-wing commentators. He is simply viewed as a threat to those who disagree with his views. The description of him as an extremist, a man who wants to legalize drugs, open borders, and legalize euthanasia, and participate in secret plots is patently ridiculous. The problem is once he referred to President Trump as a would-be dictator, the chances of him having any friends on the right became a near impossibility.
